BenQ today announces two new projectors featuring high-end advancements for ultra adaptability in function and venue.

Consumers will find that BenQ’s new power projectors deliver a truly unrivaled, highly versatile visual enjoyment in even the most challenging of environments.
Working Wonders @ Work
Business users will be wowed by the SP831/830’s awesome Twin Screen functionality and generous connectivity (HDCP-compliant DVI-I, RJ45, RCA, S-Video, Composite Video and PC audio). The SP831/830 transform mundane PowerPoint presentations into high-energy productions, projecting video (such as a corporate video) and PowerPoint document side-by-side. The projectors’ ability to host notebook/PC and DVD/video player simultaneously makes Twin Screen capability possible. Users can also connect two PCs at the same time for projecting two different office applications side-by-side.
The SP831/830’s sharp 2000:1 contrast ratio and ultra-brilliant 4000/3500 ANSI lumens also takes boardroom meetings out of the Dark Ages with superior color accuracy, depth and vibrancy. Images remain true and impactful in lighting conditions that don’t keep viewers scribbling notes in the dark.
Business users will also find password functionality and panel key lock features to be convenient and useful. And at only 10 pounds, both projectors are easily mobile.
Hot Home Entertainment
With HD being the hot new standard in viewing pleasure, many older home videos, VHS movies and analog TV broadcasts may seem sub-par when it comes to image quality. However, BenQ’s new SP831 and SP830 DLP® projectors can raise standard definition viewing to high-definition amazement instantaneously and easily with rare, leading-edge Hollywood Quality Video (HQV) processors. HQV Technology independently processes each pixel for superior image details, as opposed to older technologies that evaluate blocks of pixels or entire frames, which create halo effects.
BenQ’s 3D Color Management and Brilliant Color™ Technology will likewise have home audiences thrilling to the hottest new blockbuster movie, all with a spectacular 1.07 billion color palette. HDCP compliance further has users confident that all images are viewed in the highest possible definition.
The SP831 and SP830 additionally optimize home entertainment with a wide selection of inputs to host all necessary multimedia devices – VCRs, gaming consoles, HD DVD players, PCs and Blu-ray DVD players. Each unit is compatible with numerous formats including: NTSC, PAL, SECAM, HDTV (1080i, 720p, 576p, 576i, 480p, 480i), VGA and UXGA.
Home users will also make Twin Screen capability more than just a business advantage -- play Counter-Strike™ Source™ (with PC/DVI-I input) on one half of the screen while another plays Call of Duty 2™ (with Xbox 360Elite/component input) on the other half. The SP831 and SP830 further feature smart Picture-in-Picture.
Both projectors have a native WXGA (1280X768) resolution and 15:9 aspect ratio. Noise levels register at a quiet 34/32 dB (normal/econ mode). Image size ranges from 25” to 300”, with a throw ratio of 58” at 6.6ft. An optional lens attachment is available. SP831 = $2999 MSRP/ $2799 ESP. SP830 = $2399 MSRP/ $1999ESP.
